Carole Kustoff Stevens
An attorney with a strong desire to help you resolve your family law issues and move forward with your life.
Carole Stevens is an attorney who can approach your divorce or family matter from a practical, non-confrontational position. Her philosophy in working with divorce clients is to provide them with clear, concise legal advice to help them gain an understanding of the process, the legal system and the client’s options, so that each party can make the best possible decision for their family and changing family needs. She believes that each divorce or family matter is intrinsically different and personal in nature, and that you have a right to design the best possible divorce.
After receiving her Bachelor of Arts from University of Georgia, Carole was employed in Washington, DC in a series of political opportunities that included a year on the Reagan Bush ’84 campaign followed by a stint in political fundraising as Finance Director for John Kasich’s bid for the U.S. Congress in Ohio. In 1991 Carole began her legal career as an Account Representative for Lexis/Nexis legal research software, followed by the chance to work for Texas Lawyer as Managing Editor of Lexis Counsel Connect, directing editorial content and coordinating product sales. Carole began litigating in 1995, initially practicing law with Tobolowsky & Associates in Dallas in the areas of general civil litigation and family law.
Carole began her own law practice in 1996, and she chose family law as her practice area and in 1999 she joined as a partner with Nancy Amick to form Amick and Stevens. She was treasurer of the Plano Bar Association in 1997 and a member of the State Bar College , as well as a founding member of the Collin County Collaborative Divorce Alliance.
